FIRE BRIGADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 January 1857

FIRE BRIGADE. The Ballarat fire brigade promises at last to attract the attention which so important an institution demands. A public meeting was held at the Montezuma Hotel, on Friday evening last; the attendance was large, manifesting a laudable interest in the establishment of the brigade. Mr Rodier having taken the chair, Air C. Dyte, the hon. secretary, announced tha*. thc canvass for funds in aid of the brigade had resulted in procuring over £150, and that several other sums were promised. Mr Leake having resigned the office of hon. treasurer, Mr S. Lazarus was appointed in his stead. The regulations for the government of the brigade were brought up, and generally approved of by those present. The uniform to be adopted by thc brigade was discussed at considerable length, and resulted in the choice of a cloth cap with red baud, with the letter A in front, a red jumper, and a leather belt. Qr Bunce was elected an hon. member of the brigade, having volunteered his services as sur...

THE STATE OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 January 1857

I THE STATE OF EUROPE. The state of Europe is unsettled. We be lieve, however, that the firinness of the Em peror of the French will put an end to a dif ficulty which ought never to have arisen. The original scene of thc struggle is in Con stantinople, where A ali Pacha has just been replaced by Bedschid Pacha, a fact which the British public would care as much about as that Sir Peter Popkins had succeeded Sir Jacob Hopkins as chairman of the Twiddle. thumb Quarter Sessions, but for the princi ples for once involved in a Turkish change of ministry and their special effect on Euro pean affairs. France, as our readers know, as represented by its present Foreign depart ment, affects great confidence in the thoroughly honest intentions of Bussia. It is, indeed, positively denied by the Constitu tionnel that tlie proposed restoration of the Polish estates of his family to Count Walewski could have induced that statesman to view the acte of Alexander LT. with a favorable preju dice, for t...

LOCAL COURT ELECTIONS. TO THE MINERS OF BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 January 1857

LOCAL COURT ELECTIONS. TO THE MIN EUS OF B1LLA.EA.T. As the elections are shortly nbout.to take place, and as several of the present members are about retiring from the Court, it would be as well Sor us to. consider who should be the persons to succeed them, as we have only about a week left before they come off. : There are several qualities a man should possess to make hun eligible for a seat at the Board. Practical experience, integrity of purpose, and last, though not least, a good share of common sense. Of course a man who has proved the friend of the miners would have the preference.

MB LALOR'S VOTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 12 January 1857

MR LALOR'S VOTE. ] On Saturday evening- a crowded meeting took place at the Council chambers, for the purpose of hearing Mr Lalor's explanation for having voted for the 4th clause of the Electoral Act. The room was crowded to excess, and before the meeting was con cluded a large concourse of people had assembled around the building, many of whom listened to the proceedings through the open windows. After some little delay in waiting for Mr Lalor, who had just arrived at Bath's Hotel, Mr W. C. Smith was voted into the chair, and said that he believed they all knew the. business for which they had been called together. He trusted any gentleman who had anything to say would rise from his seat, and not indulge in any desultory con versation. If a gentleman wished to pro pose a resolution for or against, let him do so. He trusted that they would conduct the proceedings as agreeably as possible, and not dwell too long on any particular point. Mr Lalor not having arrived after the meeting ...

DELIBERATE MURDER AT GREEN GULLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 13 January 1857

DELIBERATE MURDER AT GREEN ! GULLY. j Castlemaine was oil Wednesday morning j last startled by a rumor, which turned out to be too true, that a cool and delibérate murder had been committed at Muckleford. Some ! new diggings haye recently .been opened about two miles . beyond Muckleford, and within a i very short distance of the Loddon. In addi tion to the alluvial diggings, a remunerative quartz reef has been opened, and it was on it that the unfortunate victim in this instance had been employed. The deceased, William Lobb, was 'a reefer, working, as wc under stood, on terms with Mr .Shorter,.of North Muckleford, and was a great favorite with all his neighbors-and . a man of an edu cated and cultivated mind. The accused, Michael Higgins, waa a storekeeper residing at the foot of the 'gully, on the road from Castlemaine to Guildford. There were other parties concerned: a Mr and Mts Walker, who were keeping a small branch store on behalf of Michael Higgins, who had steted it was his ...

GEELONG COMMERCIAL. Saturday Evening, 10th January. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 13 January 1857

GEELONG COMMERCIAL. Saturday Evening, 10th January, j The imports of the past week are valued at £11,720. With the exception of the sugar, ex Scotia from Port Louie, they have been limited to goods received from Liver pool ria Melbourne, or brought by colonial traders. The only article of export has been the gold (9S73i ounces) shipped in the Aus tral and the Thames, the declared value of which is £39,494. The total receipts at H. M. Customs have amounted to £5,75713s. lld. The Austral sailed from the Heads on Thursday last, and the time of departure fixed for the Thames is Tuesday next, the 13th inst., being two months exactly from the date of her arrival at this port. The latter ship has now 2,700 bales of wool on board, which is a rather smaller number than has been taken in former voyages ; this is owing to a portion of the cargo having been shipped undumped. The Thames is to take ten lUuusauti oiuiuca uf gold, a part only of which has at present been delivered to the ship. Busi...

SATURDAY'S MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 13 January 1857

SATURDAY'S MEETING. I The honorario member for North j Grenville, and his constituents, are clearly opposed on the Fourth Clause question. It does not require us to j quote Mr Labor's assertion that "be' had voted for the Fourth Clause, and would do so again," to prove this ; from Mr Lalor's so called explanation it is evident that they can never agree as they view the question from different ' points of view. The electors of North Grenville take the present state of things, and argue tbe merits of the Fourth Clause thereon, while their repre sentative holds an opinion that property J should be taxed and, therefore, repre sented onthe principlethat taxation with outrepresentationis robbery. When Mr Lalor has succeeded in putting a special tax on property, and taking off the greater portion of that now paid on excisable articles by the consumers, then, and not till then, can he advo cate the special claim of property to be represented. Mr. Lalor forgets that in the whole colony not o...
